Gratitude for new friends

Meet Elder and Sister Grover.
Our dear new friends. They run the mission office. I think they actually run the mission, but don't tell President Pfile.
The Grovers have served for over two and a half years. Guess what? Just when they were about to be released, they immediately put their papers in to serve another two years. They are amazing. They live about 75 miles away. Each weekday morning, they drive their car to a Park 'n Ride and catch a bus to Colorado Springs. More than an hour later, they get off the bus, hop into their other car and drive straight to the mission office. They reverse the process at the end of the day. Day after day, week after week, and now year after year. They just don't understand why EVERYONE doesn't want to do the same. They are so much fun. Everybody loves them, especially us. We just wish we could keep up with them.
